Mathematically precise tooth surface definition and contact
analysis help to develop state-of-the-art straight bevel gears for
many industrial applications. The new Coniflex-Plus manufacturing
process utilizes high-speed dry cutting with production
times per slot which are about twice compared to the fast

Gearing Principles in Cylindrical and Straight Bevel Gears
The purpose of gears is to transmit motion and torque from one shaft to another. That transmission normally has to occur with a constant ratio, the lowest possible disturbances and the highest possible efficiency. Tooth profile, length and shape are derived from those requirements.
